not so much before the attacks. does this cold war mentality that president obama talked about still hamper relations between the u.s. and russia? >> it appears to have been a problem in this case but really shouldn't. we've had relations with countries around the world which have been pretty rocky and yet on the counterterrorism level, it's been very, very good cooperation. even when i was in office at times that some other countries were not necessarily seeing eye to eye on iraq or other issues, at the law enforcement level there was always a lot of exchange of information because it's mutually important. this is important to the russians as it is to us. i would put some emphasis on making sure that our relationships with the russians or anybody else at this level are being maintained properly and so there is a good flow of cooperation. >> i've heard talk that one of the reasons why it might not have gone as swimmingly as it should have is because russia is always trying to convince the u.s. that the chechens with whom they're involved in this ugly, bloody war for years and years,

importance to mexicans, also very important domestically to americans and president obama talked about that saying there's an economic imperative to tackling reform. >> i think it's important for everybody to remember that our shared border is more secure than it's been in years. illegal immigration attempts in the united states are near their lowest level in decades. and legal immigration continues to make both of our countries stronger and more prosperous, and more competitive. and this in part reflects the economic progress and greater opportunities here in mexico. i think this progress should help inform the debate in the united states, and i'm optimistic that we're finally going to get comprehensive immigration reform passed. >> president obama will deliver a speech here this morning and meet with mexican entrepreneurs and then it's to his second and final stomp on this mini-tour that he's doing of latin america. he'll be going to san jose, costa rica. there he'll join a summit of heads of state from central american nations as well as the dominican republic. a top concern for tho

to take you back to the white house correspondents' dinner where president barack obama is talking about his offensive in washington. >> i am not giving up. in fact, i'm taking my charm offense on the road. a texas barbecue with ted cruz. kentucky blue grass concert with rand paul. and a book burning with michele bachmann. my charm offense has helped me learn a few things in congress. it turns out, absolutely nothing. but the point of my charm offensive is simple. we need to make progress on simple issues. take the sequester. republicans fell in love with this thing and now they can't stop talking about how much they hate it. it's like we're trapped in a taylor swift album. one senator who has reached across the aisle recently is marco rubio. but i don't know about 2016. i mean, the dguy has not even finished a single term in the senate and he thinks he's ready to be president. kids these days. i, on the other hand, have run my last campaign. on thursday, as ed mentioned, i went to the opening of the bush presidential library in dallas. it was a wonderful event and that inspired me to ge
have the kind of grand bargain that president obama is talking about with the republicans where you cut social security and medicare and in exchange the republicans agree to raise taxes and you have ten more years of austerity. i think in the next year or two until the economy gets back on its feet, you need public spending to get people back to work, rebuild the infrastructure and make it more competitive and when you get back to something close to full employment, people have jobs and are paying taxes, then you can reduce the debt because you have a higher growth rate and the debt ratio comes down on its own accord. that's the time to rebalance. >> woodruff: would that be your remedy? >> i think the headline for listeners is not what i want but what has happened. if you look at the cbo's unless of what president obama and the republicans have agreed to and they stabilized the debt at a reasonable level about the average of the last 20 years relatively quickly. my guess is given that there's a lot of posturing in washington but they are not going to do much more either way. there won't
about long term problems, we would be thinking about the long term unemployment. obama has talked about this somewhat but that is not where washington's mindset is right now. >> you mentioned manufacturing. zero gain there. in other areas, professional business services, leisure, hospitality, 43,000. that may improve over the summer. health care, 19,000. construction, lost 6,000. government lost 11,000. are those losses, you mentioned government. is the construction number the result of sequester? >> there's been a lougs boom. whether or not that will continue after such a low base. the other thing to look into these number is that professional business services, a lot of these are really, really poorly paid jobs. yes, you have a job if you have 26,000 a year, but that, too, is something we should think about. what is the wage level. not the unemployment rate. the wage level of an employed person. >> when governor perry was running for president, he touted texas a lot, apply home state. what he was remiss in saying is you have people who were employed but were in low waning jobs and man

. >> david, let's talk about obama's wars and his use of modern warfare on the cyber wars as you mentioned, and then the drone wars. as we've discussed, these wars are prosecuted without congressional say-so. are largely unaccountable. rules of engagement have really yet to be codfide on both fronts. they are targeted but there is serious collateral damage in the case of drones, obviously innocent civilians have been killed. as you point out, that was sort of unintentionally replicated around the world, that virus. i wonder if we can take a historical look for a second. obama might be a nobel peace prize winner for his aversion to traditional warfare but he has been a pioneer commando in terms of modern warfare. how do you think the longview of history will parcel out those two opposing ends of the psalm coin? >> you know, it is a great question. as i reported on confront and conceal, i got to a point where i reached an american official, worked for president bush, worked for president obama, worked with them quite closely, and this official said to me, you know, what was surprising about

't know why people don't have faith and -- >> is not a right wing talking point. president obama himself. >> it is not just that obama decided not to do it. what happened was, when he said he would bring him here to manhattan to try the case, congress passed a law that said he could not close guantanamo. he does not have that option available to him. it does not mean it was right. >> we have to it and it. good to have your voice in this debate. thank you. coming up the latest captives held by north korea, 15 years hard label innate labor camp.

. we have big problems with the budget and the economy and we're talking about background checks as if it matters. it doesn't matter that much. and all of the passion it and all of the focus that president obama decided to make on this issue, i do think was political exploitation. he hadn't talked about gun issues one bit during his campaign. i think this was a huge political mistake on the part of the president. >> do you think he's lost a lot of political capital? do you think this was a mistack to use as capital in this way? >> well, you know what, it matters to 90% of the american people. so you want to call that being political, that's fine. we have problems around the world. guess where else we have problems? newtown, connecticut, aurora, colorado, we have a lot of problems here. that's why all of these senators that voted against background checks are seeing their numbers plum et and the senators that had the courage to vote for it are seeing their numbers come up. there's a reason why pat toomey said the reason republicans didn't vote for it is because they didn't want to

think the reason there are so many folks talking about the possibility of government tyranny is threefold really. the obama administration's increasing reliance on big government. i think it's folks like alex jones who did this routine where every time they shut down a city like boston it's the end of the world and military law. and honestly, i think folks like you, piers because, you know, you go out of your way to really give the impression that you're interested in taking away people's fundamental right to bear arms and i think that scares a lot of folks. >> i'm not against the right to bear arms, i'm seriously against the right of having military style assault weapons to blow people away in a school. >> you said you're against assault weapons, but handguns kill 6,000 a year. >> they're both a big problem. mass shootings. >> you're from the uk, why don't we go with a full gun ban. >> we discussed it, the uk has 40, 50 gun murders a year, the u.s. has 12,000. let's move on. >> i'm glad you finally have your agenda out there. >> let's turn to jason collins. this is the sport

obama and members of congress. i can tell you, alex, i have been talking to our local affiliate in mississippi who says that his home, dutschke's home, was searched by investigators on tuesday and wednesday of this week. so this arrest comes after that. now, of course, if you will recall, this past tuesday prosecutors dropped charges against elvis impersonator paul kevin curtis. they thought he was behind the letters. he declared his innocence along, and so this past tuesday they did drop the charges against him. now, just for some background, alex, this all relates to those ricin-laced letters that were addressed to president obama and to a republican of mississippi, senator roger wicker. those letters were intercepted though. they were intercepted at off-site mail facilities. so to be very clear, they never got close to their intended targets, but given the timing of this, this happened just really a few days after the boston bombing, it certainly added to the heightened anxiety and alert here in the nation's capital. so at this point in time there is another person in custody
